I've blamed the NuvaRing, but I recently read that SSRIs can cause heavy sweating and fouler-smelling sweat. I take an SNRI and a sleeping pill. It's been a long time (9 years) since I haven't taken any meds, but I definitely don't remember sweating this much, especially during my sleep. Is the sweating and smell a side effect of the meds?
If this is the case, I don't want to consider switching meds - sweating aside, my meds work great for me with few of the side effects I experienced with other meds. Is there any safe way to minimize the sweating and the odor? I tried deodorant and foot powder out of desperation, and ended up with an itchy rash. Should I try baking soda or cornstarch?
